Domaine Michelot has been in the Michelot family for six generations and, having increased in size over the years, now comprises more than 19 hectares which include a number of prestigious 1er cru wines. The domaine achieved widespread recognition in the 60s under the direction of the charismatic Bernard Michelot and this spirit and tradition flourishes and grows in the hands of the current generation. The Meursault vineyards are made up of a number of “terroirs” – parcels of land with individual characteristics of soil, drainage and orientation – and their distinct personalities yield a diverse range of wines.
This wine is produced from 4 ha of vines that are made up of 10 parcels, a stone’s throw from the appellation of Meursault. It is vinified in 500lt barrel, only 2-3% new oak, and aged for one year before spending 6 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. An expressive honeyed bouquet, the palate is rich and succulent with butter and honey notes and there is a delicious citrus tang that gives balance to such a rich palate. A baby Meursault!
Great with smoked salmon and avocado sushi.
